For the first time, Edna Gurewitsch, David's wife, is opening up and revealing their story, and hers, after she married into their complicated relationship. Edna also gives a fresh, insider's look at Mrs. Roosevelt as she continued to influence world events, and the book is filled with passionate letters from Mrs. Roosevelt.

"With admiration for her subject, Gurewitsch has significantly expanded our understanding of the last years of the 20th century's great American woman." (Publishers Weekly)
"A passionate and complex connection between two gifted individuals in a sensitive and astute portrait of a 'rare and precious friendship'" (Booklist)
"A love story of rare quality: intelligent, wise, and, above all, generous in spirit and understanding." (Kirkus)
I knew almost nothing about Eleanor Roosevelt before listening, and I'm glad that this generous, friendly biography was the first I experienced rather than some of the darker more cynical works. A truly remarkable woman for any era or time in history, I came to admire Eleanor whole heartedly for her many fine qualities.
I enjoy audio books. One of my favorites "My Life In France" allows me to open any section anytime to become immersed in the joie de vivre!
Sweet, Happy, Ending
Dearie, because they both carved out lives for themselves. Especially at a time when most women faded into darkness after their marriages. Both of these women went on to find fulfilling lives. I am very impressed by people who cultivate love and purpose in their lives.
I think she did a fine job and enjoyed listening to her. It does make a difference to have a voice that resonates with the listener and the subject.
A Life Lived Well.
